Bath Wargames Club

[Under Construction]



As we will reopen in September with the Covid 19 restrictions in place, we need to modify our usual modus operandi.  Please ensure you bring your own measuring tape (essential) and dice for the games being played (desirable but not essential) .  A mask must be worn when in the hall and any models being used must be unpacked and repacked by the user into their transport container at the end of the session, no other player to touch them during the game.  These simple measures, along with use of the hall's sanitisers at the start of and through out the session, are intended to minimise any potential transfer of the virus from anyone who is asymtomatic.

Bath Wargames Club was founded in or around 1970 and is one of the oldest wargames clubs in the South West still meeting.  We are a small and friendly club that meet up on certain Sundays throughout the year at Claverton Down Community Hall in Bath.

We have a Yahoo group for updates and arranging games but as the functionality of Groups is being striped away with no user generated content being allowed to be upload now and what there is going to be deleted in December 2019, a replacement (virtually a  duplicate) using all the content has been created using the Groups.io platform.  This can be found here. The group will have all last minute news and announcements. There will be a posting detailing what will be played at every session.

The calendar has been updated and the confirmed dates for for all of  2020 added , so please access it by clicking on the link to the left!  Please note that two dates (April and December) were incorrect when the first update was done and they have now been corrected

 Our quarterly subs are £15 (and have been at this level for most of the last decade and a half).   The casual rate is currently £5 per meeting (20% reduction for under 16s and the unemployed) .

We play a wide varied selection of miniature wargames ranging from historical based Ancients and Spearhead to Science Fiction based ones like Star Wars, Full Thrust and Mechwarrior. Past games are also shown on Calender under the current year to illustrate the variety of rules and periods being played. If you have a suggestion for a game, we will try our best to arrange one for you.

Current rule sets/periods played are as follows:

  • 15mm Ancients (DBA/DBM/DBMM)
  • HOTT
  • DBR (25mm)
  • Naval (Sails of Glory, Cruel Seas)
  • 6mm Napoleonic (FOGN & Polemos)
  • 20mm WWII skirmish (Skirmish Wargames, Chain of Command, Bolt Action, What a Tanker)
  • Spearhead (1/300 WWII and Cold War micro tank)
  • 25mm Sci-fi and modern skirmish (club rules)
  • Tactical Jet Air War
  • Full Thrust

We are always happy to see new faces at the club, so whether you are a seasoned veteran just moved into the area or a complete beginner interested in learning more, feel free to drop by during one of our meetings. Please have a look at our calendar and see the Yahoo Group if you wish to come along in case of any last minute cancellations.
